Hi everyone have not posted before but I stuck my self with a 20 gauge dirty needle and I am 28 weeks pregnant I called my one manager and she had the nerve to ask if I even wanted to report it. I may been dumb to get stuck but I am not dumb enough not to report it . Went to Er and did the proper steps and now on the drug cocktail . Then my other manager has the nerve to say we will see the pt next week and get the consent form signed. It's a joke I am so am mad Especially b/c they are not taking this seriously . Also in home care we don't have complete histories at times so not sure about the pt past . Any one else stuck while

pregnant come out ok? Also any stuck while doing home health care

This did not happen to me while pregnant or while working in hh, it happened when I was a student. Proper concern was shown and I obviously did ok. Can't offer any advice, except for you to take the attitude into consideration for the long haul. Hope this is not the start of a negative relationship with your supervisory personnel.
